Abstract

Whole blood viscosity depends on vascular geometry and blood physiological constituents. Diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia and obesity- the major components of metabolic syndrome, can independently affect blood vessels and microcirculation. In this review, we focus on the effect of whole blood viscosity in different components of the metabolic syndrome and also discuss the whole blood viscosity in regards to oxidative stress and inflammation - a common state in chronic disease.
